Study Session

Print
A study session is an opportunity to receive feedback from the Design Review Commission on a preliminary design that can ultimately speed the review of the final project. Applicants are encouraged to schedule a study session with the Design Review Commission early on in the design process to identify issues and receive preliminary feedback that can inform the design of the project.

When Is a Study Session Appropriate?
In order to get the most out of a study session the design should be 30 – 40% complete. Input at this point in the design process allows an applicant to incorporate recommendations into the final design. If the design is significantly further along, staff may recommend against having a study session since the project is developed to the point of submittal and full-fledged consideration.

A Study Session application must be submitted to the Planning & Building Department to be scheduled for review by the Design Review Commission

Check the Project Checklist to determine if your project is subject to other triggers for review.
